He was the true inheritor of Mahatma Gandhi's
legacy who always kept reminding the countrymen till
three and a half decades into the independence that the
values Gandhiji stood for never get outdated.
Many leaders through their behaviour and actions
tried to spread the motion that Gandhian values were
just a strategy to gain freedom by putting the British on
backfoot. They saw no use in harping on those
principles in post-independence India. But Vinoba
proved them wrong. As a true disciple of Gandhiji he
stood his moral ground and lived on like a frugal saint
who espoused no political power or materially gainful
position dwarfing the compromising politicians.
The nation realised his importance when he
departed to meet his Creator and the country was left
with no spiritual guide to show the way out and we fell
to the whims of the petty politicians and the corruption
The young generation needs to read the life of the
great ones like Vinoba to realise the importance of our
spiritual values that only can keep us afloat as a nation.
